Job description

The NCA is an organisation which leads the UK’s fight to cut serious and organised crime. This includes child exploitation, people smuggling and human trafficking, major gun crime, fraud, cyber crime, money laundering, corruption and class A drugs that organised criminals use to facilitate these crimes.

We work to imprison serious criminals, and use many other tactics to disrupt crime and keep people safe. In particular, we want to ensure crime doesn’t pay and that it’s harder to commit. We also draw on innovative new approaches to prevent crimes from happening in the first place.

We expect our Officers to work to the highest standards of behaviour in everything they do.

Our values and behaviours are:
- Flexibility – seeking continuous improvements to the way that we work, adapting to find solutions to difficult problems.
- Integrity – acting with the highest standards of integrity and professionalism.
- Respect – treating everyone with dignity and respect, valuing diversity, working in partnership, and sharing knowledge and best practice.
- Serving the public – being proud to put the public interest at the centre of everything we do.
- Transparency – being truthful, open and accountable for our actions.
